At Southern Cross Care (Vic) we think about aged care a little differently. We believe older people have a right to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives. We have been supporting older Victorians and their families for more than 40 years and understand that the freedom to choose where and how you live later in life can provide real peace of mind. Our residents and clients tell us that independence and staying connected home, family and community is so important to them. We believe this should be the same for everyone regardless of age. That’s why we offer a range of high quality support services and programs across Melbourne and regional Victoria that aim to enrich the lives of older people, regardless of their care requirements, financial circumstances or lifestyle preferences. We provide: Home care services for those people who choose to stay living in their own home, supported with a little extra help from either self-funded home care services or government-funded care management programs. Community nursing, which can used for additional home care support, particularly for people with a need for a higher level of care. Respite services to give carers a well-earned break. Independent and assisted living for those who want to maintain an independent lifestyle, while enjoying the security of living in a retirement community. SCCV is fortunate to enjoy the support of a valued and committed volunteer network . Our priority is to provide clients with whatever support they need to ensure emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing. Our aspiration for all older people is to see them “living well, loving life and participating within a just an inclusive community”.
